    I am building an 026, I rebuilt the carb and when I pressure tested it found that is leaks where the plastic elbow for the fuel attaches to the carb.

    Im guessing this isn't a serviceable thing, is it?

    Looks like you need a carb. You could try some clear nail polish around the elbow, not sure how long it will last.

    Not a serviceable part from Stihl. Carburetor is WT-426 Stihl part number 1121 120 0611

    Seeing how it is broken, you could attempt to remove it and see if some type of adhesive could be applied to cure the problem first.

    Maybe the elbow connector 1117 122 3900 fits your carb? (Not exactly sure) It is used on the WT-29 of 009, 010, 011, 012 and some WA-49, WA-99 and WS-11, WS-26

    Depending the price Stihl charges with the WT-426-1 you might be off getting the carburetor from a shop that has access to a Walbro distributor. My distributor say it is available through them with a list price of $64.35.

    This depends if the elbow above doesn't fit. Personally patchwork nearly never hold over time and when it comes to fuel leakage can be dangerous.

    Yeeeeeup. I ordered a new Walbro once I was informed that part can not be changed. I Just work on saws for fun, but I do need them for all the dumb sh1t we're doing on our property. By the time I finish this 026 I will be embarrassed to say what I have into it LOL
